Judy Greer on “Arrested Development”: People are talking about bringing Kitty Sanchez back

Judy Greer on Arrested Development

Posted by on

The new season of “Arrested Development” is happening. There’s visual proof it’s being written, which at least to us makes the announcement it’s happening seem all the more official. And with the entire fourth season to be released at once on Netflix, that’s all the more reason to be excited for 2013.

When we heard that Judy Greer was going to be at the DVD release party for “Jeff, Who Lives At Home,” we knew we wouldn’t let her get out of the Basement Tavern in Santa Monica without asking at least one question about “Arrested Development” and the potential return of Kitty Sanchez. When we last spoke to her, Greer said that no one had talked to her about coming back to the show yet. Unfortunately that hasn’t changed in the two and a half months since, but Greer did say that “people are talking to people” about her reprising her role.

“Not this people, but some people,” she joked. “People have talked to other people about me, and that’s real. No one has talked to me, but like, yeah, people are like, ‘Oh don’t worry.’ Someone was like, ‘Oh, I talked to so and so and they were like, don’t worry, she’s going to be in it,’ but I always say that unless I’m in the movie theater at the premiere watching my face on a fuck-off screen…”

But would Greer want to come back if creator Mitch Hurwitz would have her? That, to her, was a no brainer.

“Oh, yeah,” she said, adding that it would be no different than when she would film on “Arrested Development” before. “They’d be like, ‘Can you come in to work tonight?’ I’d be like, ‘Yes, where are you shooting?’ ‘In Piru, can you be here in an hour?’ ‘Yeah, I’m at dinner. Like, I’m drinking.’ ‘It’s fine, it’s fine, we just realized we have to have you in this scene.’ They were just kind of awesome.”

When we heard that Scott Baio was going to be reprising his role as Bob Loblaw in the fourth season of “Arrested Development,” we immediately rushed to pull together a list of 10 other characters we’d love to see head back to the small (computer) screen in the upcoming episodes. Kitty was of course at the top of the list, but we wanted to find out who Greer, as a fan, felt should return.

“Annyong. I mean, is he even secondary?” she was quick to answer. “You know how that Michael’s girlfriend [Marta Estrella] who was a Latina actress, but then it was one actress and then another actress replaced her? I feel they should have both actresses back. I feel that needs to happen.”

This awesome idea just confirms our belief that Greer should take over writing for the show. After all, when we last talked to her she admitted that she wanted Kitty to come back with all the Bluth secrets that she had been hoarding over the years and “take down the Bluths.” This time, she had an even more hilarious scheme set up for the former Bluth Company secretary.

“I also think I should be pregnant with one of their babies. Mystery baby,” she said. “I feel like Kitty should have all the secrets that takes them down, but we’ll see what they decide.”

“Lucy, put supper on the stove, my dear, because this ballgame is over!”

Brockmire has officially closed out its rookie season. Miss the finale episode? A handful of episodes? The whole blessed season?? You can see it all from the beginning, starting right here.

And you should get started, because every minute you spend otherwise will be a minute spent not living your best life. That’s right, there are very important life lessons that Brockmire hid in plain sight—lessons that, when applied thoughtfully, can improve every aspect of your awesome existence. Let’s dive into some sage nuggets from what we call the Book of Jim.

Life Should Be Spiked, Not Watered Down.

That’s not just a fancy metaphor. As Brockmire points out, water tastes “awful. 70% of the water is made up of that shit?” Life is short, water sucks, live like you mean it.

There Are Only Three Types of People

“Poor people, rich people and famous people. Rich people are just poor people with money, so the only worthwhile thing is being famous.” So next time your rich friends act all high and mighty, politely remind them that they’re worthless in the eyes of even the most minor celebrities.

There’s Always A Reason To Get Out Of Bed

And 99% of the time that reason is the urge to pee. It’s nature’s way of saying “seize the day.”

There’s More To Life Than Playing Games

“Baseball can’t compete with p0rnography. Nothing can.” Nothing you do or ever will do can be more important to people than p0rn. Get off your high horse.

A Little Empathy Goes A Long Way

Especially if you’ve taken someone else’s Plan B by mistake.

Our Weaknesses Can Be Our Greatest Strengths

Tyrion Lannister said something similar. Hard to tell who said it with more colorful profanity. Wise sentiments all around.

Big Things Come To Those Who Wait

When you’re looking for a sign, the universe will drop you a big one. You’re the sh*t, universe.

And Of Course…

Mommie Dearest Is On Repeat All Mothers Day Long On IFC

The cult-classic movie Mommie Dearest is a game-changer. If you’ve seen it even just once (but come on, who sees it just once?), then you already know what we’re talking about.

But if you haven’t seen it, then let us break it down for you. Really quick, we promise, we’ll even list things out to spare you the reading of a paragraph:

1. It’s the 1981 biopic based on the memoir of Christina Crawford, Hollywood icon Joan Crawford’s adopted daughter.
2. Faye Dunaway plays Joan. And boy does she play her. Loud and over-reactive.
3. It was intended as a drama, but…
4. Waaaaaay over-the-top performances and bargain-basement dialogue rendered it an accidental comedy.
5. It’s a cult classic, and you’re the last person to see it.

Not sold? Don’t believe it’s going to change your life? Ok, maybe over-the-top acting isn’t your thing, or perhaps you don’t like the lingering electricity of a good primal scream, or Joan Crawford is your personal icon and you can’t bear to see her cast in such a creepy light.

But none of that matters.

What’s important is that seeing this movie gives you permission to react to minor repeat annoyances with unrestrained histrionics.

That there is a key moment. Is she crazy? Yeah. But she’s also right. Shoulder nipples are horrible, wire hangers are the worst, and yelling about it feels strangely justified. She did it, we can do it. Precedent set. You’re welcome.

So what else can we yell about? Channel your inner Joan and consider the following list offenses when choosing your next meltdown.

Improperly Hung Toilet Paper

Misplaced Apostrophes

Coldplay at Karaoke

Dad Jokes

Gluten Free Pizza

James Franco

The list of potential pedestrian grievances is actually quite daunting, but when IFC airs Mommie Dearest non-stop for a full day, you’ll have 24 bonus hours to mull it over. 24 bonus hours to nail that lunatic shriek. 24 bonus hours to remember that, really, your mom is comparatively the best.

So please, celebrate Mother’s Day with Mommie Dearest on IFC and at IFC.com. And for the love of god—NO WIRE HANGERS EVER.

From Canada With Love

Baroness von Sketch Show comes to IFC.

Breaking news that (finally) isn’t apocalyptic!

IFC announced today that it acquired acclaimed Canadian comedy series Baroness von Sketch Show, slated to make its US of A premiere this summer. And yes, it’s important to note that it’s a Canadian sketch comedy series, because Canada is currently a shining beacon of civilization in the western hemisphere, and Baroness von Sketch Show reflects that light in every way possible.

The series is fronted entirely by women, which isn’t unusual in the sketch comedy world but is quite rare in the televised sketch comedy world. Punchy, smart, and provocative, each episode of Baroness von Sketch Show touches upon outrageous-yet-relatable real world subjects in ways both unexpected and deeply satisfying: soccer moms, awkward office birthday parties, being over 40 in a gym locker room…dry shampoo…

Indiewire called it “The Best Comedy You’ve Never Seen” and The National Post said that it’s “the funniest thing on Canadian television since Kids In The Hall.” And that’s saying a lot, because Canadians are goddamn hilarious.

Get a good taste of BVSS in the following sketch, which envisions a future Global Summit run entirely by women. It’s a future we’re personally ready for.

Baroness Von Sketch Show premieres later this summer on IFC.
